Pipe Dream Charters first mate standing at back of boat holding a huge King fish.After cast netting pogies on the beach, we headed toward the north side of the Amelia Island north jetty.

Stopping a quarter mile short of the red bouy we started slow trolling.

Bait was busting everywhere and I knew there had to be a smoker along the rocks.

The best tide for trolling the jetties is the incoming tide but we were a few minutes late and it had already started its outgoing tide.

But just maybe, just maybe there would be a big one hanging around the bait pods.

Patience Pays Off

After ten minutes of slow trolling, she struck and smoked the reel for at least 100 yards.

After setting the drag Ronnie, the first mate, handed Shanes’s daughter the rod and she worked it perfectly.

After a good 25 minutes and tediously working the fish the first mate stuck it with the gaff.

This King would have paid in any tournament!
